Weaving gossamer threads of history and humanity, author Sara M. Robinson pens What Difference Does It Make, a novel that portrays hope and perseverance while capturing the zeitgeist of the Great Depression and World War II.

The Story begins in 1925, David and Lora Brookins begin their lives as a married couple and live in Miami. As time passed, they move to Texas, then Alabama and, finally, Georgia. All the while they struggle to survive the Great Depression with their four surviving children, Amy, Jane, Susan and Ben. As the ominous cloud of the Second World War looms closer, Jane finds love in a young sailor named John. She helps the war effort as a laborer while waiting for John to return from military duty. Amidst the wake of the cataclysm brought by the war, the two endeavor to start their married life and raise their own family in Georgia.

Out of the struggles of the family and the events that shook their lives and the world, Robinson crafts a story that poignantly portrays what life was during the 1920’s until the 1960’s. Stirring and eye-opening, What Difference Does It Make is peopled by richly-drawn characters whose emotions, principles and dreams will let them find an indelible spot in the reader’s heart.
